Progressive Web apps are an important feature of a browser that Firefox is the only one missing.
For some, it can be the reason to switch to another browser.
In other cases like for the Steamdeck, it's what imposed the choice to only include Chrome in the SteamOS interface.
Other problem even for avid Firefox users, since I wanted Social apps on my pc I had to get them on the Microsoft Store which is an Edge PWA that opens every link in an Edge window, making me use this... other browser.

[EDITED] Sadly non officially. But you have the possibility to install apps from websites such as YouTube or Mastodon using this extension that works beutifully: https://github.com/filips123/PWAsForFirefox

Nice!

Microsoft has mad a PWA out of their Teams client (for Linux) recently and it annoys me to no end that I can't just click on links in Teams anymore since they open in Chromium automatically. Thanks for adding this back!

@zannaHow, through the Unofficial PWA Extension?

@zannayou are using the extension aren't you? Because there's no such prompt on my machine, and that dialog is exactly the same as the one provided by the 'Progressive Web Apps for Firefox' extension

In fact you are right @palexdev, I made a mistake. Thank you for having corrected me!

I'll use only Chromium based browsers until PWA will not work
